Greenbone Vulnerability Manager
The Greenbone Vulnerability Manager is the central management service between security scanners and the user clients.
It manages the storage of any vulnerability management configurations and of the scan results. Access to data, control commands and workflows is offered via the XML-based Greenbone Management Protocol (GMP). The primary scanner OpenVAS Scanner is controlled directly via protocol OTP while any other remote scanner is coupled with the Open Scanner Protocol (OSP).
